current mood: drunk

Earlier this evening I had Omni seasonal release Cranberry Champagne - I've decided if it's still available when I get married I want it at my wedding.

Now I have spiced mead, which is pretty yummy. Booze is fun. I want to try some other stuff this year though - I think it'll be a case of Marion gone wild.

FYI - I'm now going by Marion, my middle name. It suits me better than Winnie.

I've looked at a few venues for weddings tonight but nothing really standing out yet. But there's options.

I'm back

current mood: exanimate

Sort of. Maybe.

I don't really have time for LJ, I much prefer Twitter. But I came on here looking for some icon resourcey type stuff and ended up spending most of the afternoon/evening on here.

So I doubt I'll write much but I'll be around more than I have been in almost a year.

Tina Arena was AWESOME! I was in the 2nd row, and it was on at the State Theatre in Market St. which is probably the most gorgeous building I've ever visited!

Did I mention the 2nd row seat??

She mostly did stuff off her new album (Songs of Love & Loss 2), which didn't matter as she has the most amazing voice. She kept dancing all crazy-funky on stage which was cool too.

High points:
- "To Sir With Love" before interval
- "I Want to know what love is" with her guest, Kain somebody
- "Baby it's you"
- THE SILVER DRESS. OMFG. IF IT HAD BEEN IN THE PROGRAM I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT IT. HOLY SHIT HOTTEST THING EVER! It reminded me a bit of what Renee Zellweger wears in "Roxie" - but it was strapless with all this silver-beaded fringe and leaf-shaped mirrors hanging of it so it tinkled when Tina shimmied and just looked AMAZING.
- Tina sang "Maybe this time" from "Cabaret" - she played Sally Bowles for 3 months at the state theatre a few years ago and it shows! I only wish I could have seen the production!

Um, now the reason I meant to post in the first place 2 dreams about S. which is odd as I don't usually dream about him.

Thursday night: I met a girl he was going to take to some event and she seemed really nice and I tried to be supportive and happy for him, but somehow he found out I liked him and then dumped the other girl for me, and I felt bad because she seemed really nice. And then there was...other things

Friday night: I dreamed there was a whole bunch of complex events but it ended with me discovering that S. hadn't realized I was into him and so in the dream I went up and asked him out and he said yes and it was a really fab feeling (I think that's my subconscious needing to practice so the real thing doesn't seem so scary)

I had a lot of trouble sleeping on Thursday, and ended up discovering the hotel cable. I watched The Women (1939) and have decided Norma Shearer (Mary Haines) is one of my new vintage style icons!!

I also bought a bunch of books and a couple of t-shirts, and had the most divine lunch on Friday.

The Jewish Museum was great, the building is amazing, the guide wasn't very good though - but then I'm pretty well read and I really enjoyed the exhibitions on Jewish history and custom. Also, some of the Jewish convict history is quite fascinating. The memorials are very fitting, peaceful places. Apparently it's the only Holocaust museum in the world which was established by survivors, so that's pretty special.

It took me a bit of time to get in the mood of the concert last night, and once I did I realized it was because I didn't want to be sitting and watching, I wanted to be up on stage belting the songs out myself! I guess Tina's lyrics and expression touch me on a deep level where I identify with them so deeply and just want to express them with the same passion she does.

Musical theatre, here i come?

Dymocks is evil

February 22nd, 2009 (02:31 pm)

current mood: blah
current song: Falling - Missy Higgins

I'm still totally freaking out about the housemate sitch, but hopefully this sustainability student will be a goer!

I went to the mall and got some groceries, also browsed at Dymocks. Saw a few vaguely interesting fantasy books, but what I really wanted to buy was the "best australian political cartoons 2008" and the easy piano book for "On A Clear Night" - Missy Higgins. It was cheap too, I would have bought it if it hadn't been for this rent looming over my head.

I really want to resolve things with Steve - I dreamed last night that I grabbed him by the arm and said "can we talk sometime" and he agreed and we went of to do that. I don't remember what he said, but yeah.

I'm feeling crappy today - worrying about money and Lizzie and boy things - I really hope it's just PMS. I'm not in the mood for Burlesque tonight, but I guess I'll go so I can hear the talk, not that I'll be a very glamorous example.

I just need to sleep or something I think.
